Kaffe Fassett comes to Wales!

What an AMAZING day out today.  The Coach House organised a trip to the Kaffe Fassett quilt exhibition at the Welsh Quilt Centre in Lampeter.  What a treat.  I can’t believe how much the exhibition completely blew me away.  It absolutely surpassed my expectations.

As I walked through the door to the exhibition I was stunned.  The walls of the gallery were hung with a full colour palette of traditional Welsh quilts, whilst Kaffe’s quilts were suspended from the ceiling throughout the room.  I am not a wordsmith so can’t really explain how overwhelming and beautiful they looked.  It was a very emotional experience.

You can’t really tell from the picture how breathtaking this exhibition is.  I would highly recommend that you go along so you can experience it for yourself.  The exhibition is open until November and is definitely worth a visit.

My favourite quilt was the ‘Imari Plate’.

I was desperate to get hold of some of that fabric and thought I was going to have to do some research to figure out how to get some.  I couldn’t believe it when I popped into Calico Kate’s next door and she had some in there!  I bought a fat quarter in the bright pink colourway.
